    Broadband help...

    Hey guys,

    Just want your opinions on something,

    I've got Orange broadband 20meg (the ultra one) at home, the problem is, my bedroom where my ps3 is situated, is quite far away from the living room where my phone line and router is, just wondering what options I have really to try and boost the signal? At the moment it can be really rubbish.

    Would buying another router for my room and connect one to the other help?

    I'm not totally clueless on these things just that I haven't had to do anything like this for a while.

    Cheers in advance and rep for help!

    They are the way to go mate.

    You need two, as you say connected to router and one to PS3

    There has been a hot deal recently at £40 i think.

    Best thing you can do in your situation :thumbsup:

    thanks guys, rep to both of you, wil buy the ones from Amazon I think!

    Look for the twin packs to save you buying two single units seperately, twin packs will be cheaper.
